"Every 6 minutes a woman dies of an illegal abortion" is an appalling statistic about the effects of prohibiting access to safe legal abortion. This simple installation was designed by Willem Velthoven for Women on Waves (WoW). The installation consists of a text and a red lightbulb that shuts down every 6 minutes. An other version of this installation was shown at the Wonen on Wave exhibition at Mediamatic in Amsterdam in the same year.
